  • Hot vs Cold Data: Its Influence On Data Placement Decision & What to Do About It
    Hot vs Cold Data: Its Influence On Data Placement Decision & What to Do About It
    Augie Gonzalez, Director of Product Marketing, DataCore Software Recorded: Apr 25 2019 45 mins
    The short half-life of data, quickly decaying from hot to warm to cold, governs how much you should spend on it throughout its stages.

    Humans are poorly equipped to track the rapid temperature changes, much less capable of reacting to it. Consequently, largely dormant data consumes precious space on expensive storage, blowing up disk capacity and spiraling up costs.

    In this webinar you’ll become acquainted with:
    •Machine learning (ML) techniques that sense data temperature variations in real-time
    •Artificial intelligence (AI) methods used to dynamically migrate data accordingly, between primary, secondary and cloud storage from different suppliers
    •Relative distribution of storage tiers necessary for optimum savings

    Join us to hear the story of City of Carmel and Mirazon. City of Carmel is one of the fastest growing cities in Indiana. Carmel was voted #1 in American's Best Places to Live by Money magazine. CNBC voted Indianapolis/Carmel ”Best Cities to Relocate to in America”. Over the last two decades the city has almost tripled its population and this growth has forced their IT infrastructure to expand rapidly.

    Thanks for Mirazon’s recommendations they found the perfect solution that helped them modernize their infrastructure to provide 24/7 data access for Fire and Police department’s critical systems. For nearly a decade, City of Carmel has experienced Zero storage-related downtime. Even through maintenance windows, their VM’s have achieved 100% uptime.

    The best part is, they have done with budget-friendly backend disks and allowed Software-defined storage to do all the heavy lifting. They have enjoyed Enterprise level active/active HA functionalities across 2 different buildings, running a VMware stretch cluster with HPE Servers connected via 10Gb and HP MSA backend enclosures.

    Learn how City of Carmel has been able to stay running without downtime for almost 10 years and have saved $75,000 by extending their hardware life expectancy thanks to their secret sauce.

    In this webcast you will discover how City of Carmel:
    • Has experienced 100% uptime for nearly 10 years
    • Extended their storage life expectancy by 80% and saved $75k
    • Replaced every storage component without doing a forklift and replace

    Achieving IT Modernization and Flexibility Without the Pain of Migrations
    Scott Sinclair, Sr. Analyst - Enterprise Strategy Group & Alfons Michel, Sr. Product Marketing Manager - DataCore Software Recorded: Mar 13 2019 60 mins
    Data is a strategic weapon of any institution or business. But, if you’re not leveraging it, then it can be a massive competitive disadvantage in the industry!

    So how can you, and your IT organization, gain this advantage? A transformation must occur.

    Maximizing IT infrastructure flexibility is paramount to keep pace in this newly formed digital age. But typically, any major change in your IT infrastructure, besides costs, requires risky, time consuming and disruptive data migrations. So how to overcome this obstacle?

    Join our brief webinar and Q&A at the end to hear more about the background, drivers and enablers to achieve IT modernization and flexibility without the pain of migrations. In other words: to disrupt without disruption. Experts from ESG and DataCore will jointly look at the challenges associated with the need of IT modernization and how it can be accomplished – within budget and without any disruption for your operations.

    Learn more about the hold-backs and how to overcome them, because there is nothing more constant than change. Join us to discover:

    • The need for change and transformations in IT
    • Seamless introduction of new technologies
    • Seamless migration options (e.g. to hyperconvergence)

    How to Easily Migrate Data Without Downtime
    Alfons Michels, Sr. Product Marketing Manager & Alex Best, Dir. Technical Business Development - DataCore Software Recorded: Dec 12 2018 60 mins
    Are you forced to replace your hardware? Are you thinking about different deployment models for your IT infrastructure, e.g. hyperconvergence?

    Well, any change to your IT infrastructure is a major challenge, and typically requires complex data migrations, resulting in service downtime, overtime and more money to spend - but are the results worth it?

    Before you start your next project, think about an alternative approach to rip-and replace, like software-defined storage. You may ask yourself, why should that help me? And there are many good reasons, but an essential one are the unrivaled chained migration options.

    If you're wondering what these benefits can mean to you, just join our brief webinar, which also includes a live demo and audience Q&A so you can see how simple it is to bring software-defined storage into your IT environment and leverage chained migration. Among others, you'll be able to discover:
    • How to integrate software-defined storage into your environment
    • How to migrate data between totally different types of storage
    • How to change towards hyperconverged during regular business operations
  • Need-to-Know Benefits of Having Continuous Data Protection in Your Storage
    Need-to-Know Benefits of Having Continuous Data Protection in Your Storage
    Steve Hunt, Dir. Product Management - DataCore Recorded: Nov 29 2018 46 mins
    IT organizations require a data protection solution that can combat against the ever looming threat of malware or ransomware, and data corruption, which can have a significant effect on day to day operations. When that data protection capability is included in their storage solution, it allows IT organizations to reduce their overall costs, while maximizing their ability to protect all data they are responsible for.

    This is why DataCore Software created Continuous Data Protection (CDP), or the “undo button” for your data. In this webinar we explain and show how DataCore Software’s CDP feature can deliver one-second restore granularity and provides the best Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of any data protection solution.
